We stayed here for 5 nights during our honeymoon. From the moment we were greeted at the Santorini port by the hotel's driver we knew it was going to be a memorable trip. We arrived at the hotel to a very warm welcome from the staff and were immediately guided through check-in. We were told that because we were on our honeymoon and because we were Virtuoso guests, we had been upgraded to a superior suite with a small outdoor pool! As you can imagine, we were quite excited by this news and knew we were in for an amazing week. We were also given welcome drinks as well as a bottle of wine and fresh fruit for our room. On top of that we were told that we were eligible for either an 80 Euro credit or a free sailing tour of the island. Obviously we took the sailing tour and it was an amazing day on the water.
Our room was spacious but bare as is the custom in this area from what we learned. The room was a cave literally dug out of the mountainous terrain of Oia. It was a very cool experience to stay here. Breakfast was included and they generously give you the option of eating at a buffet or having it delivered to your room at no cost. We decided to try both but liked having it delivered to our patio and ended up doing that most days.
The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and arranged for many great meals and some activities. The friendly and knowledgeable gentleman who was on duty at night was the most helpful (I only wish I could remember his name!). He had great restaurant recommendations and knew all the good spots to see the sunset as well as places we should make sure to see. We used him as a big resource and visited him each night to plan the next day. He also arranged for a very special birthday wine tour that we greatly enjoyed.
We can't say enough good things about this property and the staff. We look forward to returning one day.
